Why I must work from home and be a stay-at-home mom.

I have found that in my search for work at home positions, I have been met with a lot of judgement and negative comments. People calling me lazy and saying that I need to just put my child in daycare and get back to work. Well, that's not an option for me. And I am NOT lazy. You see, though my daughter, Phoenix, is my only child, she wasn't my first child. I gave birth to a beautiful little girl in 2003. Madison. She was my everything. As I am now, I was a single, stay-at-home mom then, too. But after a certain period of time, the state said that if I didn't go back to work, we would both lose our benefits. And I could not let my child go without healthcare. Working from home was not allowed. They said that I had to work outside of the home and gave me a deadline. So I complied. I wish I hadn't. I put Madison in one of the daycare providers that they gave me a list to choose from. This was the very first time I have ever left my child in someone else's care. She was 10 1/2 months old and she had never left my sight. Ever...until this day. The last day of the deadline. I did everything they told me I had to do. Her very first time away from me, in the daycare the state told me I had to put her in. She didn't even make it through the first half of the day. She was killed. I will spare you the gruesome details. The details that I have burned into my memory for the rest of my life. This was 10 years ago. Now, I have another beautiful gift. And I will never let anyone take her from me. I won't let that happen again. That's why I'm a stay-at-home mom and that's why I'm only looking for work at home positions now.

Thank you for listening.
